Passing along the coastal road travelling South from Colombo to the small village of Wadduwa. The village is little more than a string of private homes with good access to the main route to the Capital and the many fine beaches that line the coast.
There are a number of shops along the main road selling their wares and the obligatory king coconut stalls selling fresh juices from this sweet tropical fruit - stop and savour this natural nectar provided from the palms that grow in such profusion in the area.
On its journey South the busy road which serves as the main artery for buisness between the south of the island and the capital winds its way some distance from the Ocean, it is therefore necessary to turn towards the sea down small narrow roads passing private bungalows that occupy seemingly prime positions close to the railway track, a vital link between the capital and the coastal conurbations.
The beaches at this point are superb and often deserted save for a few inqusitive children.
Like many of the resorts along the coast the potential for tourism in the area has yet to be fully explolited and is only a few enterprising individuals that have opened souvenir and tourist shops close to the hotels. Restaurants are still confined to the hotels in the immediate area since eating out as a pleasurable pastime has yet to develop. Fortunately, with Colombo only 65km distant and taxis freely available and economical it is possible for the determined to spend an evening in the capital City, where there are some very fine restaurants and clubs for those who seek lively entertainment.
